is 1 year enough to get a new job?

crystalpan specializes in new grad.

Hi everyone, 

I am wondering when is the "good amount" of time for you to leave your current job and work for another hospital? The current one I am working for is too far and would like to look for something closer (paying for 2 places and driving back and forth every week is exhausted). Thank you everyone for your input. 😄

In many cases, it is enough ...depending on what area you hope to work in and the job market where you're located.

1 year is enough. I left after 11 months.

One year seems to be the magic "minimum", but I've seen postings that ask for 2 years experience.

I am in NJ now, I just want to get a job closer to where I live so I don't need to travel so often.

Could I ask if you go from med/surg to another med/surg or to a different unit with 11 months of experience? thank you.

I thought one year is the minimum but I heard other people saying 2 years so I got confused. Thank you for your time!

I went from inpatient psych to community psych.

Start applying and see what happens.

Hi FolksBtrippin,

thanks for your reply. Should I starting applying now or wait until I reach 1 year? Is applying now too early?

Does it hurt to try? If you get a new job that you like, it's a win, correct?
